Biography

Crowned King of France in 1515 in the cathedral at Reims and reigned until 1547.

Francis I, a member of the Valois Dynasty.

Francis is considered to be France's first Renaissance monarch. His reign saw France make immense cultural advances. He was a contemporary of King Henry VIII of England, his great rival.

François I died at the Chateau Rambouillet and is interred with his first wife, Claude de France, Duchess of Bretagne, in Saint Denis Basilica.

NOTE: Francis I, parentage of child 'Henry" with mistress 'Dau DE LA RIEUX' is speculative and without conclusive documentation. However it may prove to be true and possibility deserves inclusion.

Information and comments are very welcomed.

Removed "Dau de la Rieux" as wife of François - he was only married twice, to Claude de France and Eleanor of Austria. There was a Damoiselle de Rieux at his court who may have been an occasional mistress, but even that is not certain.
